CB CROPWhy Breast Cancer Care?

Nearly everyone knows someone who has been affected by Breast Cancer. My Grandmother died of it at the age of 64 and my mother is just recovering from it having been diagnosed in the Autumn of 2012.

Breast Cancer Care is for anyone affected by breast cancer. They have been working for over 30 years listening and talking to people about breast cancer. They provide accurate, easy to understand information as well as practical and emotional support. They are the only charity working across the UK to provide these services.

Every year they are contacted almost two million times for support and information about their services including their helpline, website and publications. All their services are free.
